  1. Vehicle shuddering or vibrating under load

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Any update on your experience here? I've been told I need a rebuild on the tran due to shudder in 2nd gear
  2. Shuddering/Rumbling at Low RPM + Noise

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Did you have any CEL codes or just a shudder? I've had one shop suggest the waveplate but from my research that just causes an abrupt loss of the 3,5,R gears and not a shudder.
  3. Shuddering/Rumbling at Low RPM + Noise

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I have the same issue on our 2008, trans flush helped for a bit, then same when I repeated it but likely the torque converter is just not engaging fully anymore
  4. 2008 SLT2 AWD - Trans shudder shake in low gear under load

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I'm getting intermittent shaking from the drivetrain after fully entering the gear under low RPM on at least 2nd and 4th gears, not consistently though. No codes, full computer scan did not find anything out of range. Anyone have this happen? Of course mechanic could not replicate, he may have...
  5. 2009 Acadia - Transmission or Drivetrain Shudder

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Solution? Did this end up being the torque converter solenoid?
  6. 2012 Acadia liftgate struts failling

    Body / Exterior
    Pretty weak personal attack on parenting, these things are POS's and you know it, its not a common failure

    Body / Exterior
    You don't a faulty design should be supported by the company that made it?
  8. 2012 Acadia liftgate struts failling

    Body / Exterior
    Struts failing again I had GM replace them as part of the recall, now they are failing again and the liftgate is acting like it will "peak" but then drops down to hit my 2 year old in the head. Dealership says its not going to do anything a second time. Do you guys think GM should repair it...
  9. Hard starting then easy starting?

    Engine & Drivetrain
    What are the options if the test is successful in finding that as a cause for the difficulty in starting? I guess a new way to start my car for the mean time!
  10. Hard starting then easy starting?

    Engine & Drivetrain
    So the goal in putting the key to the On position for a couple of seconds before trying to start is to see if it can be determined as a fuel pressure building problem?
  11. Hard starting then easy starting?

    Engine & Drivetrain
    2008 SLT 2. Has anyone else experienced a cold start that requires a good amount of turning over and then on second attempt with turning the key, fires right up? No codes or anything, not necessarily tied to cold start but more common. Thanks!
  12. MAP DISC READ ERROR - you Don't need a NEW RADIO!

    Interior and Electrical
    What should I do if we have a DVD stuck in that plays fine, but won't eject or even attempt to eject?
  13. Ongoing AC problems

    General Tech
    Did you test it with the gauge/R134 contraption to see if it is low? I need to do that tonight on my 2008, I think it is icing over during the day
  14. Power Lift Gate (nothing to do with the recall)

    Problems, Recalls, TSBs, FAQs & Links
    Did replacing the lock mechanism fix this issue? Mine was failing for about a year and now will not even latch, imagine an open liftgate warning every bump
  15. poor gas mileage

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Sorry to revive old thread but it looks to be the best one. I have a 2008 with about 100k on it and am getting about 12.5 mpg city, quite a bit of idling, does this sound problematic like I might be facing a transmission problem soon? Thanks
